Default Attn ASUS !! where is my motherboard ?

Ok......I am getting impatient now.(after a year of waiting)

The rampage IV extreme motherboard is a paper launch ?....Just enough made to get to the reviewers.??

Bah !

From what I've discovered , there is'nt even an ETA on these motherboards , nobody has stock or even an idea....

ASUS I love you , but you gotta start using lube.

Please , tell me something.Is it true they have shipped to North America ?

Somebody throw me a bone , because every contact I have comes up with nothing.

...

Try a different board brand and stick it to 'em for being slow?

In the same boat. Just doesn't make sense to me. Never had production issues before that I have noticed, and this board is probably the highest margin for them.

I may end up hanging off altogether and see what the talk about revised steppings for chipset and proc is in the new year.

What to do

If it was'nt my personal rig I'd do a different motherboard.The rampage has features I really dig , like the voltage test points/thermocouples etc..

My biggest concern right now is that the lack of information is bad.It makes me worried that there are problems with it.I don't like that ; I lost over a thousand dollars on the whole Striker Extreme fiasco , and I'm still a diehard ASUS customer , but I need to know whats going on.

hehe

I can vouch there are no problems with the board, Ive had mine a month and it is fine. Takes a bit for board distro, be patient my friend. You cant get chips either if that makes you feel any better.

Talking about the K model. X is a waste of $$ IMO. Most of us are also in Canada with no access to newegg.com.
